Thanks to Nero we have a scan from the latest issue of EGM with Shane Bettenhausen detailing the specifics of what happened at DKS3137 in August. Most of the article we already knew but a few interesting facts came up like Lightning’s ability to jump and roll while exploring the field.
At the event Nomura also apparently confirmed that Final Fantasy Agito XIII and The 3rd Birthday are now PSP exclusives meaning their mobile development has been cancelled. He also says that they are both going to be released in 2009. We assume this is the Japanese release date. This does contradict with previous reports that Agito would be the last out of the currently announced Fabula Nova Crystallis titles to be released but as in the past, plans for this title seem to change dramatically.
Tomorrow the Tokyo Game Show begins (for me anyway) and we’ll be making sure to keep you all up to date with any announcements as we get them. Maybe we’ll see further confirmation of Agito’s release date. To read the full scan, click the image below.
IGN have extracted some more details from the latest issue of Famitsu PS3 that came out a few days ago. Some details to the storyline of Final Fantasy Agito XIII have finally been revealed and also the fact that Final Fantasy Agito XIII was always being planned for release on PSP.
Tetsuya Nomura and Hajime Tabata said in Famitsu that the title was always being planned for release on PSP but the announcement a few weeks ago was to show that the PSP development had taken priority.
In the Final Fantasy Agito XIII world, the PAX CODEX (a peace treaty) has been broken by Cid from a neighbouring country who has sent “Lucy” or “Lucies” to invade the other. We aren’t sure what a Lucy is but I’m sure we’ll find out eventually. Little more is new in the article but at least now we know the basis of the storyline and that Cid will be present in at least one of the Fabula Nova Crystallis titles.
Ever since the announcement that Final Fantasy Agito XIII would be coming to the PSP, fans of Sony’s handheld have been looking forward to seeing how Agito will turn out now it’s more than “just a mobile game”. Sadly, today is not the day to see what it will look like running on the PSP, however Gamekyo have aquired a sort-of new screenshot from Final Fantasy Agito XIII.
The screenshot shows a similar area to the screenshots from TGS 2007. As well as showing ruins, they show what appears to be the lone island which was once protected by The Crystal. You can read about the most recent Final Fantasy Agito XIII trailer in more detail here.
Square-Enix has just confirmed that Final Fantasy Agito XIII, previously a mobile exclusive will now be seeing a release on Playstation Portable. We assume he game is still being developed for mobile. Square-Enix have also announced that Parasite Eve 3 will be moving to Playstation Portable today.
To go with the new screenshots for both FFXIII and Versus, Square-Enix has released some new screenshots for Agito too. Once again one of them is an old screenshot in a higher resolution but two of them are new but featured previously in magazines.

The First CG screenshot for Agito has been released. It was in the Square-Enix pamphlet at this years TGS.
Here is a photo of it.
There you can see FFXIII, FFVersusXIII, and a nice CG Picture of a blonde person next to Agito.
Now, for those of you who wants to know more info about the third part of Final Fantasy Fabula Nova Crystallis; Agito, there was a trailer of it at TGS. There is only a summary of the video on 1up, so if anyone knows where to get a trailer of it, we would love to know.>
The main character — or at the very least, the character who served as the focus of the new Agito trailer — is a blond teenage boy who walks into his academy and seemingly unleashes a disaster.
Agito appears to be a collaborative card-based RPG, likely a multi-player adventure in the vein of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories.
Its up to you people to say if its something to get hyped up of or not.
